I know, right? But in honor of Valentine’s Day upcoming, I’m going to post barfy love quotes all month for One-Liner Wednesday. This is despite the fact that I do not have a Valentine nor do I expect to have one ever again.
But! That’s the beauty of serendipity ~ the unexpected. That’s why we love romcoms and romance novels (those of us who do). While we as readers know that the protags will meet, have major problems, overcome them, and live happily ever after ~ they don’t know that. This is what makes the stories interesting and why we identify with the heroines. We’ve been there. We know how it feels to be struck with Cupid’s arrow and feel bewildered. Why him? Why now? This wasn’t supposed to happen!
I just received a book in the mail I ordered from Amazon titled Not the Duke’s Darling by Elizabeth Hoyt. While I love her books and romances featuring dukes, I can’t recall why I bought this. I have a zillion books to read already! I guess I should view this as simply another instance of serendipity. 😂
